A myth-shattering ale that proves all dark beers don’t have to be filling. Sweetly smooth with nutty hints of roasted caramel flavor. Pair with grilled beef or vegetables, Southwest cuisine and caramel desserts.

This is pretty solid. Not too nutty or malty. Easy drinking but with a full flavor. Certainly a beer worthy of repeat-drinking.

Dark brown body with hints of rust at the edges. The thin head is khaki colored. caramel and some milk chocolate are right up front in the initial nose. There is also a little bit of biscuit. I got strong notes of milk chocolate and pancakes in the initial tastes. As I drank more I began to note some earthy wood and hints of roast. A fairly good brown, but a little bland.

Pours a medium brown with very little head. Almost no aroma. Flavor is sweet malts and toffee. Has too little carbonation and tastes flat and watery. Not a bad beer, but not one I’d seek out again.

Light head and aroma. Decent flavor but nothing outstanding. Good maltiness. Pretty mediocre brown ale. Smooth with very little aftertaste.

Cola brown pour with a medium dirty white head. Aroma was heavy crystal malt. Flavor had strong caramel, brown sugar, roasted malt. A little too sweet. Good amount of carbonation.

Bottle. Pours clear brown with small beige head. Aroma is biscuity and slightly sweet. Flavor is good, nuts and caramel, fairly sweet, and very smooth. Pretty good but not outstanding.

Nice smooth beer with medium to little head. Had a pleasant scent, and a very unique flavor. Goes down easy (sometime too easy) and has a coco/caramel aftertaste. Alone, this is a nice beer for a relaxing day, with food, that can be a bit tricky.

Great brew I had on draft while in Lincoln, NE. Almost too smooth...had some nice smoky flavor, but went so nicely. Decent brown head. After trying 2 brews from this company, I was very pleased. Looks like there is more than football in Lincoln!

From a 12 oz. stubby bottle with no freshness date. Poured a dark brown with a foamy, fluffy head that settled into a thin lacing. Simple aromas of chocolate, nutty grains with a light floral and citrus. Even, steady carbonation and a crisp, dry, smooth light bodied mouthfeel. Tastes of coffee malts, nutty, a little burnt grain, citric fruitiness from the hops, and a chocolate malty, citric, grainy finish.
